The Type of Cholesterol Doctors Often Ignore
Research shows this form of LDL is an even more important indicator of your heart health. Yet most doctors don't check for it … and few natural cholesterol solutions even address it!
By Janet Zand, OMD, L.Ac
You already know about HDL — the good cholesterol — and its health benefits for your heart. And you know the importance of maintaining normal levels of LDL — the bad cholesterol.
However, you probably haven't heard this latest news.
Scientists have uncovered another type of bad cholesterol. This form of cholesterol is usually ignored. But keeping it low may be even more important to your health and longevity.
In fact, it can cause good HDL cholesterol levels to plummet … trigger inflammation overload throughout the body … and seriously impact your heart health. Yet most natural cholesterol solutions don't address it. Even worse…
Typical Cholesterol Tests Don't Even Check For It!
My name is Dr. Janet Zand. For years, I've been searching for a natural way to support healthy cholesterol on multiple levels — something many cholesterol therapies simply fail to do.
Most people tend to think of cholesterol as bad. However, your body needs cholesterol to function normally.
Cholesterol is an essential component of cell membranes. It helps the synapses in your brain fire faster — so it protects your memory. It also helps manufacture bile acids, sex hormones, and is essential for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like Vitamin A, Vitamin D, and Vitamin E.
So as you can see, cholesterol is important for your health. And while you probably heard that high levels of LDL are the main culprit behind cholesterol problems, that's not quite accurate. You actually need a healthy ratio of both good HDL and bad LDL in order to survive and thrive.
However, there's another form of LDL cholesterol that's an even more important heart-health indicator. It's called oxycholesterol — or oxidized LDL.
Oxycholesterol occurs when free radicals in the blood oxidize the existing LDL cholesterol. As this oxidized LDL cholesterol builds up, it can seriously impact the health of your arteries.
What's more, oxycholesterol causes good HDL cholesterol levels to plummet even further. So it affects the health of your entire cardiovascular system, too!
Oxycholesterol is usually made up of small, dense particles that can break apart and flow through your bloodstream. Research also shows it can trigger inflammation in the body — and keeping inflammation at normal levels is essential for a healthy heart, too.
So the real important cholesterol number is not your overall LDL level…but your level of …oxidized cholesterol. And while there are many popular natural remedies that support healthy LDL levels, very few target the problem of oxycholesterol.
Here's What You Must Do for Total Cholesterol Support…
It's true you can lower your cholesterol levels with a healthy diet and regular exercise. But sometimes, diet and exercise aren't enough — and that's why many people turn to cholesterol formulas.
However, many of these supplements come with problems of their own.
Take lecithin, for example. While some studies show it's effective for lowering total cholesterol, the data is inconclusive when it comes to keeping the critical balance of good HDL vs. bad LDL levels. Plus, high doses have been shown to cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
You may have also heard about the benefits of red yeast rice for cholesterol control. While red yeast rice shows some potential for healthy cholesterol levels, it's important to watch your liver enzymes if you decide to take it. Plus it depletes your CoQ10 levels.
Niacin is another popular remedy, and studies show it does a good job of lowering LDL and triglyceride levels. But it also has some uncomfortable side effects — like skin flushing, headaches and lightheadedness.
What's More, None of These Supplements Target the Problem of Oxycholesterol!
A cholesterol formula should support your heart in five important ways:
It should reduce unhealthy levels of LDL cholesterol, before it has a chance to be damaged by free radicals.
It should help you make more HDL, the good cholesterol that keeps arteries healthy and flexible.
It must burn up the oxycholesterol that's already in your bloodstream to support healthy blood flow and improve your overall health, too.
It should promote a healthy ratio of good cholesterol vs. bad…and reduce total cholesterol levels.
It should help reduce triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are blood fats that also affect your heart health.
One of the most effective remedies I've seen for total cholesterol support is a compound that was discovered recently. It actually limits the absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream, and studies show it has the ability to…
Improve LDL and Total Cholesterol Levels
In fact, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis stated that just one gram of it per day can lower your total cholesterol levels as much as 10%, and bad LDL levels an additional 15%.
Similar results in more than 20 other studies lead to recommendations by such prestigious institutions as the University of California-Davis Medical Center and Tufts University. But even more important…
The benefits of this compound on heart health are so impressive, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration now points to their potential benefits for lowering cholesterol as part of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet — as well as for boosting overall heart health, too.
People Ask Me All the Time: "If plant sterols work so well, why haven't I heard about them before?"
Good question. Scientists have known since the 1950s that plant sterols are a powerful weapon against cholesterol. In fact, medical journals have pointed to their potential benefits for lowering total and LDL cholesterol for over 50 years.
As impressive as this news was, it didn't receive much attention. Why? When a major pharmaceutical company tried to make a synthetic prescription version of plant sterols, it flopped in every single one of their clinical tests. Natural plant sterols worked much better. Since the drug giants couldn't profit from it, it wasn't worth their time.
So this exciting information remained buried…
It was only recently that scientists were able to isolate plant sterols into concentrated levels that could be taken as supplements or added to foods. And now, plant sterols are finally getting the attention they deserve.
A wave of exciting studies conducted by such prestigious organizations as Tufts University, the US Department of Agriculture, McGill University in Montreal, University of California Davis and many, many others all point to the same conclusion: plant sterols can dramatically reduce triglycerides, LDL-cholesterol and total cholesterol levels. Plus they're completely safe and work fast. Most study participants saw results.
Where can you get plant sterols? Many food manufacturers have added them to some snack foods and margarine. However, these sterol-additive foods are expensive — and they are chock full of sweeteners, preservatives and hydrogenated oils.
Because it's so hard to get enough plant sterols thru diet, the best way to get them is in supplement form. You need a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams to support healthy cholesterol.
What is this exciting cholesterol buster? Plant Sterols. Found in many fruits, vegetables, nuts and cereals, plant sterols — also known as phytosterols — are structurally similar to bad cholesterol but with a HUGE difference: they're helpful to your system, not harmful.
Plant sterols actually fool your body into thinking they are harmful cholesterol. Then, they limit the bad cholesterol in your diet from being absorbed into your digestive tract.
Plant sterols act as a "defensive guard" that keeps the bad cholesterol from getting into your bloodstream.
Clinical Studies Show Results
Researchers have known about the cholesterol-supporting effects of plant sterols since the 1950s. But it was only recently when scientists developed a way to extract the sterols from plants and convert them in a more absorbable form.
Scores of scientific studies showed the extraordinary benefits of plant sterols for total cholesterol control. Consider this:
They can reduce bad cholesterol up to 18 percent: A study conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture showed that people who took plant sterols for two weeks saw LDL levels drop from ten percent to as much as 18 percent.
They can slash your risk of cholesterol problems by nearly one third. Researchers at Tufts University say that not only can plant sterols lower bad LDL, they can also reduce your total cholesterol by 10 percent.
They help lower oxidized cholesterol. A recent study reported in a leading medical journal found that one gram of plant sterols — along with other cholesterol-lowering foods — help reduce the level of oxidized LDL.
Plus, they seem to get results for just about everyone! Scientists at Washington University were astonished to find that plant sterols reduced cholesterol in all study participants. That's right — 100% of the study participants saw their cholesterol drop, purely with plant sterols!
The average was a 9 percent reduction in LDL cholesterol and a 6 percent decline in their total cholesterol. But what was even more shocking: those with the unhealthiest LDL levels saw an even bigger drop — as much as 30 percent.
In addition to their cholesterol-lowering benefits, plant sterols act as a natural antioxidant and also promote healthy inflammatory response. What's more, they are completely safe, fast-acting and inexpensive. But there's a catch…
The FDA permits the following health claim for plant sterols: "Foods containing at least 0.65 grams per serving of plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease."
In order to consume the 1.3 grams of plant sterols you need, you would have to eat several pounds of fruits, nuts, and other foods high in plant sterols. That means eating as many as 100 small potatoes every single day to notice any cholesterol-lowering benefits.
While some margarines, cereals and snack bars are fortified with plant sterols, the easiest and best way to get the levels you need is in supplement form. However, to get all the maximum health benefits, it's essential that you take only the finest quality of plant sterols, and at the levels used in the clinical trials. Nothing else will do.
While you can get plant sterol supplements in stores, they are not always harvested and processed to give you the highest quality and effectiveness. Plus, many of these formulas deliver only a fraction of the 1.3 grams of plant sterols per day that the FDA suggests.
Announcing…Exceptional Cholesterol Support
That's why I decided to create a cholesterol formula that meets all of my quality and health standards. It's called Advanced Cholesterol Formula, and you can get it directly from Advanced Bionutritionals.
I made sure the plant sterols used in Advanced Cholesterol Formula are of the highest purity, potency and quality. Plus, two capsules of Advanced Cholesterol Formula twice a day provide a full 1.5 grams of plant sterols. That's more than the daily amount suggested by the FDA — and it's the level shown in studies to deliver the most health benefits.
As potent as plant sterols are for supporting healthy cholesterol, Advanced Cholesterol Formula doesn't stop there. Oxidized LDL is such a powerful enemy I added another one of nature's best nutrients for supporting heart health. It actually has the ability to…
Support Smooth, Healthy and Flexible Arteries
You already know that green tea is a potent antioxidant and has been used to enhance health for thousands of years. But did you also know it is one of the most effective nutrients nature (and science) has for supporting healthy cholesterol? Here's why.
"Dr. Zand, My LDL Level is 155. Should I be Concerned?"
Ideally, your bad LDL cholesterol should be 100 or lower, depending on your overall heart profile. But not all LDL cholesterol is bad. You actually need a healthy ratio of both good HDL and bad LDL to keep your cardiovascular system in top-notch form.
While high LDL levels are responsible for some cholesterol problems, it's the small, dense particles of oxidized LDL cholesterol that pose a greater concern.
Lowering overall LDL levels is a good first step. But it's even more important to reduce levels of oxycholesterol. And while cholesterol tests check your good vs. bad and total cholesterol levels, they don't check for oxidized cholesterol!
So how do you get rid of oxycholesterol?
First, reduce your intake of processed foods and deep-fried foods. These contain trans fats that can make your body's LDL levels jump even higher. Keep your red meat intake low. And try to eat more foods high in antioxidants such as vegetables and fruits.
But for additional support, take Advanced Cholesterol Formula. It contains a unique combination of nutrients that reduce oxidized cholesterol — and bring your HDL, LDL, and triglycerides down to healthier levels too.
What's more, most people start seeing results in as little as 4 to 6 weeks. Imagine the look on your doctor's face when your cholesterol starts dropping to healthier levels! Call 1-800-791-3395 to get started now.
Green tea contains compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols are 40 times stronger than vitamins C and E in their ability to mop up free radical damage all over your body — but especially in your cardiovascular system.
Multiple studies show that green tea polyphenols fight the conversion of LDL into its more serious, oxidized form. It also helps burn up the extra-oxidized LDL cholesterol already in your bloodstream. And if that's not enough…
Green Tea Can Improve Total Cholesterol Numbers…
According to a University of Connecticut study, the compounds in green tea help block bad cholesterol from being absorbed into the blood and digestive tract. It also increases its excretion from the body.
Another study by the prestigious Vanderbilt University Medical Center found that patients taking green tea extract saw their bad LDL and total cholesterol drop an average of 11 percent.
… and Can Reduce Triglyceride Levels, Too
As you may know, triglycerides are another important predictor of heart health. They are fatty particles that come mostly from sugars, carbohydrates and alcohol in your diet. They usually end up stored as body fat.
High triglycerides can dramatically impact the health of every artery in your body. That's why keeping triglycerides at healthy levels is one of the best things you can do for your heart — and green tea can help.
The polyphenols in green tea help slow the absorption of extra triglycerides in the blood. In fact, a study published in the Journal of Nutrition states that green tea can improve triglycerides as much as 20%.
I love green tea and it's one of the best health-enhancing nutrients you can take. In addition to its heart health benefits, it stimulates your immune function, supports healthy blood sugar levels, and combats mental fatigue and may even help with weight control.
And in case you're worried about the caffeine in green tea, you should know that each tablet of Advanced Cholesterol Formula contains only 6mg of caffeine. (By contrast, a cup of green tea has 40 mg — and a cup of coffee has 135 mg.)
Plus, the green tea we use contains L-theanine, an amino acid that helps relax the nervous system and minimize the stimulant action of caffeine. So you get all the health benefits without the jitters.
Now, let me tell you about the final cholesterol-busting nutrient in Advanced Cholesterol Formula. It's a sugar cane extract that showed such powerful results, scientists had to test it in 14 separate clinical studies. They had to make sure what they were seeing was actually real!
The Secret Ingredient That Can Really Kick Start Your Results
Researchers on the Caribbean island of Cuba have been quietly studying a strain of the exotic sugar cane plant that's an exciting cholesterol breakthrough. It's called policosanol — and it's an extremely helpful nutrient for total circulatory and heart support. In fact, I've seen it work in my own family members. Policosanol helps you limit your cholesterol worries in three different ways:
Policosanol flushes out more oxidized LDL cholesterol. As we've seen, when your levels of LDL cholesterol are too high, free radicals oxidize them…which can cause a lot of health problems for you.
Most of the cholesterol in your body does not come from your diet; it's produced by your liver. Policosanol causes your liver to metabolize — or burn up — the extra LDL cholesterol helping keep your arteries healthy. So it helps to keep the nearly 100,000 miles of arteries and veins in your body healthy, significantly boosting your circulatory health.
In one large-scale study, just 5 mg. of policosanol twice a day lowered bad LDL numbers by an astounding 22 percent. Other studies have shown decreases as much as 27 percent.

But the good news doesn't stop there. Policosanol helps limit your body's ability to make more LDL. It is also a natural blood thinner and promotes healthier circulation.
However, keeping LDL levels low and limiting oxidized cholesterol is just part of the story. But here's another way this superstar nutrient helps you take control of your cholesterol fast…
Policosanol can help your body make more good HDL cholesterol. Research shows that the higher your HDL cholesterol levels, the better. And while many natural formulas do a good job of lowering LDL, few have the ability to raise HDL levels substantially. But policosanol does. In one study, patients taking just 5 mg of policosanol twice a day saw their HDL levels increase an average of 13.6 percent!
Since policosanol can get your HDL and LDL levels into a healthy ratio, it can lower your total cholesterol, too. In more than a dozen trials, participants lowered total cholesterol by an impressive 16 percent.
Plus policosanol also delivers another important health benefit…
Policosanol can help lower triglycerides, too. Triglycerides are often linked to low HDL levels. So the higher your triglycerides, the more fat there is in your system to affect your arteries and cardiovascular health.
A double-blind study showed that policosanol lowered serum triglycerides by 16 percent. That can make all the difference in your cardiovascular numbers.
Plus, Policosanol is Safe and Effective
Since most people who have cholesterol worries are older, researchers were careful to look at the after-effects of policosanol on people over age 60 — and the scientists found absolutely no side effects.
Though policosanol is derived from sugar cane, it's not technically a sugar; it contains no sugar and has no extra calories. So even though it's from a sugar cane plant, it won't have any adverse effect on your blood sugar levels.
To get all the maximum benefits, I have my patients use only the finest quality policosanol extracted from pure, high-grade sugar cane wax. This is the type used in the clinical studies and the kind you'll find in Advanced Cholesterol Formula. Two tablets twice a day give you an impressive 20 mg of Policosanol — the level shown to deliver the most benefits.
Support Your Heart For the Distance
Your heart pumps about 1,900 gallons of blood through nearly 100,000 miles of blood vessels in your body every day. End to end, it is roughly the equivalent of traveling from New York to California 24 times. So if you want your heart to last longer, you have to take care of it in the safest, most effective way possible.
That's why I recommend Advanced Cholesterol Formula to my own patients — and why I urge you to give it a try. It's great news if you…
